The first release of TBA (version 1.0) is now available. This is also an announcement for the release of a paper, "The Power of Iterators in Python," available on the TBA web site.
TBA is a general-purpose collection of pure Python modules. Right now, it just has a few iterator adapters.
TBA-1.0 and the paper mentioned above are available from the TBA web site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/tba-py/ Available formats are: .tar.gz, .zip, and Windows installer (.exe)
Iterators are actually not going to be introduced until Python 2.2, but TBA-1.0 contains code that emulates iterators for Python 2.1. For more information on iterators, see PEP 234 and the mailing list archives for python-iterators on SourceForge.
The licence for TBA is BSD-derived (this is an open-source licence that allows commercial usage).
